Easy to achieve overhead sound effects

Jamo has pulled off something pretty slick with the S 8 ATMs. These compact Dolby Atmos® enabled speakers attach to the top of compatible Jamo bookshelf and floor-standing speakers, and provide upward-firing special effects for movie soundtracks.

Each speaker has customized connectors on the bottom that plug directly into the matching speaker below. (The matching "base" speaker has an extra set of input terminals for your receiver's Atmos channel.) Sound effects bounce off the ceiling and down to your ears, putting you right in the thick of the action. Pretty cool, right?

Features

Jamo Studio 8 Series: The new Jamo Studio 8 series of loudspeakers has been engineered and designed to complement and seamlessly blend in today's modern environments and fashionable living spaces. Contemporary material and finish choices accentuate the clean, minimalist lines of this European design, while the compact cabinet architecture is an ideal solution for today's urban living environments.

Note: The Jamo Studio 8 series consists of Floorstanding loudspeakers (S805/S807/S809), bookshelf loudspeakers (S801/S803), center channel speakers (S81C/S83C), Dolby Atmos elevation speaker (S8ATM), and powered subwoofer (S808SW/S810SW).

Dolby Atmos Elevation Speakers: Recreate the incredible cinematic experience of Dolby Atmos with the S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker, which reflects Dolby Atmos height effects off the ceiling down to the listener, to create a truly stunning, 3-dimensional surround sound experience.

  • 4" Polyfiber Woofer: The Jamo S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is outfitted with a top-firing 4" Polyfiber woofer with rubber surround.
  • Sealed MDF Cabinet: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker features an acoustic suspension (sealed) MDF cabinet wrapped in a black vinyl with wood accents, and comes with a woven linen cloth grille.

Compatibility: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is only compatible with Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers. It does not offer any standard type of speaker terminal connector to be used with other loudspeaker systems.

Discrete Connections: Elegant metal fasteners atop the cabinet of Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers provide a chic, modern industrial look, but also serve as a connection point for the Jamo S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos elevation speakers (sold separately). This patent-pending design allows for all of the wire connections on the back of the loudspeaker, avoiding unsightly and messy speaker wire going all the way up to the Atmos module - for cinematic, completely immersive Dolby Atmos sound while preserving the beautiful aesthetic of the Jamo Studio 8 Series.

Note: The S 8 ATM Dolby Atmos Elevation speaker is only compatible with Jamo's S807/S809 floorstanding speakers and S803 bookshelf speakers. It does not offer any standard type of speaker terminal connector to be used with other loudspeaker systems.

Dolby Atmos Certified: Dolby Atmos takes surround sound to a completely new level, by adding the third dimension of height to the two dimensional front/back left/right 5.1 or 7.1 sound mix. In Dolby Atmos, the floor speakers create the sound "bed" and the Dolby Atmos Enabled elevation speakers are fed a separate, discrete signal to move "sound objects" around the room with pinpoint accuracy. The effect is totally convincing, and really elevates the home cinema experience to new heights.

Customer Q&A

Q
Crutchfield asked: Why did you buy this?
A
I have a Jamo Speaker system already and got a new Marantz Receiver that supports full Atmos and needed the rear Atmos speakers. The Jamo speakers are an awesome affordable complete speaker system. [ Michael  Jan 28, 2019 ]

Q
Will these S 8 ATM's paired with the S 807 or S 809 towers be ok in a medium sized room with vaulted ceilings?
[ Tom  Feb 04, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
I have the S 807 and they do an excellent job and great sound.
[ Elbert  Feb 04, 2019 ]
A
That should be fine, mine are in a medium sized room and they sound terrific. The key is to use your receiver's set up tool to perfectly dial in the sound.
[ RICHARD  Feb 04, 2019 ]
A
They are small drivers. To be honest I'm not quite sure how vaulted ceilings will work in reflecting the sound. They are cosmetically nice looking speakers but may not have the power your looking for. Very light weight cabinets. I have them set up in a small room connected to an Arcam avr390 and the 4 Atmos tops are connected to an Arcam p1000 and i am happy with the sound but I don't necessarily push them too much.
[ Gabriel  Feb 04, 2019 ]
Q
Do you have to have the plug in module tower to use these or can you wire them separately and use with older Jamos?
[ Danludwig  Feb 25, 2019 ]
3 answers
A
You can use wires to connect them but you would be better off getting a different atmos module as you would just be winding the wires around The foot pegs of these modules.
[ Dustin  Mar 03, 2019 ]
A
Technically you could crimp some speaker wire to the two terminal posts that protrude from the bottom.
[ Robin  Mar 01, 2019 ]
A
No external jacks must be used with towers.
[ JOHN F F  Mar 01, 2019 ]
